The MPH program requires 42 credits to be completed and all courses are online. Students can select any of the 23 concentrations across three campuses: University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, University of Northern Colorado, Greeley and Colorado State University, Fort Collins. Students can also create a custom concentration that reflects their unique interests in public health. Nine pre-approved credits of DDS coursework will be applied towards the MPH program.
